If You want me to

Church was amazing again this morning. And the funny thing was - I thought - was that I set through the band practicing their songs this morning none of them affected me during practice. Sure I enjoyed them, but the words didn't grab a hold of me - I'd heard them all before.
Then during the service God really spoke through the message and several songs including this one by Ginny Owens, a singer-songwriter who lost her eyesight at the age of two.
I'm still not sure of all God wanted to tell me this morning, He's still telling me more, but I know the last two years have had some ups and a lot of downs. Right now I'm on a huge undeserved up - but God remindeding me that He can still teach me and use me on the ups and on the downs. And of course the valleys may not be the way I want it to happen, it may not be the easy way, but God's still there by my side either way.

If You want me to
Ginny Owens

The pathway is broken
And The signs are unclear
And I don't know the reason why You brought me here
But just because You love me the way that You do
I'm gonna walk through the valley
If You want me to

Cause I'm not who I was
When I took my first step
And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet
so if all of these trials bring me closer to you
Then I will go through the fire
If You want me to

It may not be the way I would have chosen
When you lead me through a world that's not my home
But You never said it would be easy
You only said I'd never go alone

So When the whole world turns against me
And I'm all by myself
And I can't hear You answer my cries for help
I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through
And I will go through the valley
If You want me to

When I cross over Jordan,
I'm gonna sing, gonna shout
I'm gonna look into Your eyes and see
You never let me down
So take me on the pathway that will lead me home to You
And I will walk through the valley
If You want me to

Yes, I will walk through the valley
If You want me to
